O’s Notes: Kirk is a fascinating sax player. He drapes all of his instruments around his neck and switches rapidly between horns. Things get really exciting when he blows two or even three horns simultaneously. You’ve got too see it to appreciate it! Fortunately they camera picks it all up on these European concerts in 1963 & 1967 in Belgium, Holland and Norway. Rahsaan not only dazzles the audience with his performance, he sounds good too! “Milestones”, “Bags Groove” and “” are among the best. This is the best way to truly appreciate Kirk.
